This weekend the ninth elusive target is available for assassination, if you can find them that is. Over the course of the series there have been a few quirks for Hitman to contend with: kill the correct identical twin, ensure the collection of a piece of art, Gary Busey. This one is a little different though, you don’t know what they look like.
Owen “protagonist” Wagner is a Black Hat hacker who is holed up in a Parisian mansion with their partner “White Cap” and loves Jam. That’s all the information that you get. Jam. You have to find a jam loving hacker who’s face is a mystery. This game gets better and better.
If you’re unfamiliar with the Hitman Elusive Target mode then let’s go through this together.
- Elusive Targets are one hit wonders.
- They are available for a limited time.
- No save scumming, you know who you are.
- Instinct mode is pretty much useless.
- As is the mini map.
- If you die you’re done.
- You fail and you will forever remember this failure.
Mr. Wagner is available from Friday August 26th 13:00 BST until Monday August 29th 13:00 BST so if you want to get this jammy hacker into a sticky situation (I’m so sorry) then be quick about it. I’ve got a 50/50 success rate so far and I’ve had a quick, unsuccessful, scout about but I can’t even find him but seeing as he’s a hacker I’m guessing that avoiding all security cameras is a must.
Are you going to give it a go? Is your success rate better than mine? How much do you love jam? Let me know in the comments below.
